The 'possible' NY Senate candidacy of Tennessee's failed Senatorial candidate & DLC-Conservadem, Harold Ford, Jr., has drawn a lot of attention (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here & here just for starters).
Brave New Films has produced a short documentary about Ford for the occasion.
[...] So who is the REAL Harold Ford, Jr.?
Well, for starters, he’s a staunch opponent of abortion rights. He also disapproves of marriage equality for gay couples, opposes public safety laws to keep guns off the streets, and blames immigrants for America’s problems. Doesn’t sound like much of a New Yorker, does he?
Of course, now that he’s living in Manhattan instead of south of the Mason-Dixon line, Ford is remaking himself as a pro-choice, pro-gay, pro-gun control progressive. But unfortunately for Harold, this is the age of the internet, and you can’t just walk away from your past statements. That’s why we compiled this video of the REAL Harold Ford, Jr., to introduce New Yorkers to their latest carpetbagger.
